Boomtime in the city Anvil battery ﬁring marks 140th year in the Royal City BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
When Ancient and Honourable Hyack Anvil Battery medical officer Jerry Dobrovolny has a good Victoria Day, that means everybody had a good day. The traditional firing of the anvil battery heralds the beginning of a week of Hyack Festival activities. With Dobrovolny not having to attend to any injuries amongst the 14-member battery crew, the 21-shot salute was deemed a success by historian Archie Miller. “It was a very good day for everybody,” said Miller. “It was dark and cloudy, but the rain held off, and all shots went off as planned.” Miller pointed out that rain can play havoc with the anvil battery, simply because wet gunpowder doesn’t fire as well as dry gunpowder. “Rain always causes us to be a lot more careful,” said Miller, who added he wakes up every Victoria Day with an excited feeling in his stomach. The excited feeling, but no rain, was the case on
Monday, when approximately 500 people filled the stands at Queen’s Park Stadium to watch captain Al Coulson lead the firing of the battery. (See sidebar on page 3 for all the people and their roles.) “I hear from so many people that this is such a unique even, and even after ◗Black Page 3 Photos by Larry Wright/THE RECORD

Health critic decries waiting times for MRIs BY JANAYA FULLER-EVANS REPORTER email@example.com
It can take up to 18 months to get an MRI scan at Royal Columbian Hospital, according to the New Democratic party health critic. And it takes just as long at Burnaby
Hospital, where new MRI was installed a year ago. Funding cuts have increased waiting times, Adrian Dix said in a press release. Fraser Health estimates most patients wait five to seven months. “Thousands of patients have to undergo an MRI scan before having surgery
or in order to have medical treatment,” Dix said. “But the B.C. Liberals are limiting access to care by cutting 10,000 MRI procedures and reducing the budget for diagnostic services by another 10 per cent in the coming months.” Before the May 2009 election, the B.C Liberals increased MRI volumes in Metro

all these years, I’ll get a whole bunch of people come up to me and say this was the first time they’ve ever seen anything like this.” Miller has been involved with the annual salute since 1986, when he was the announcer for the event. It wasn’t until 2001 that he got his official role as historian for the anvil battery crew. Miller is more than happy to explain the long history of the salute, which dates back to the 1800s. The firing of anvils was traditionally used as a salute for the arrival of a visiting dignitary or a new sternwheel steamboat on the Fraser River. The members of the anvil crew wear special scarlet and blue uniforms based on the uniforms of the Hyack Fire Brigade, the city’s first fire department. The word Hyack is also significant, as it is a Chinook word meaning “hurry up” and has become an identifying symbol for many New Westminster groups, most notably at New Westminster Secondary School. The actual firing of the anvil involves placing a 68-kilogram anvil on top of a 159-kilogram anvil, with only 56 grams of black gunpowder between them. The toucher-off, the job held by Bert Houston, ignites the anvil with a long stick. The resulting explosion sends the top anvil flying upward in a cloud of smoke and a tremendous boom that sounds much like an exploding cannon. The traditions on Victoria Day include a siting shot at 11:55 a.m., a test shot to make sure that when the real anvil shots commence at noon, nothing goes wrong. At precisely noon, the 21-anvil battery salute commences, with a firing every minute. “We were lucky to have the Royal Westminster Regiment band playing for us and we got lots of applause from the audience,” said Miller. At the end of the shots, the crew members sing God Save the Queen and follow it up with three cheers for the Queen. The work for the 14-member crew isn’t over yet, as they’re scheduled for a special three-shot salute at today’s (Wednesday’s) May Day ceremonies. “We are scheduled to fire three shots: one for the outgoing May Queen suite, one for the incoming May Queen suite and a third in honour of the history of May Day and our anvil battery crew,” said Miller.
Larry Wright/THE RECORD
No job for a powder monkey: Perhaps the toughest job in the Hyack anvil battery crew goes to the left and right hand hoisters. These jobs, held by Larry Larkin, Jed Currie and Brent McInnes, involve lifting the 68-kilo smaller anvil and placing it on top of the 159-kilo big anvil. The trio performed the task 21 times on Monday.
The team that do a bang-up job
It takes 14 people to pull off the Ancient and Honourable Hyack Anvil Battery salute, and their titles are almost as interesting as the anvil salute itself. Here are the people and the jobs they have: Captain: Al Coulson is the man in charge of the battery. He gets the credit when everything goes well, and on the rare occasions it doesn’t, he’s the person to ask about what went wrong.
Adjutant: Fred Sparkes stands in for the captain when needed. In many ways, Sparkes is like the assistant captain, getting little credit for when things go well and having to find out the answers if something does go wrong. Swabber-off: This role, performed by Bruce Higham, involves cleaning off the surface of the anvils so that no foreign substances get mixed in with the gunpowder. Blower-up: Kevin Kirkland
has a job with a great title, but his duties include tending to the forge. Toucher-off: Bert Houston has the best job of all: he gets to set off the explosion. Chalker-up: Laurie McInnes and Chris Dupuis have one of the less stressful jobs, keeping count of all the shots, still vitally important because a 21-shot salute wouldn’t be the same with only 20 shots. Right- and left-hand
hoisters: Perhaps the toughest jobs are held by Larry Larkin, Jed Currie and Brent McInnes, as they must lift the anvils into position. This job’s not for the weak. Powder monkey: The job with the best title is held by Russ Cooper, who must handle the gunpowder and place it in position. Timer: Bill Radbourne holds the stopwatch to make sure there’s exactly one minute between each anvil
battery shot. Historian: Who else but Archie Miller keeps the history of the battery to make sure traditions started in the 1800s are continued properly in 2010 and beyond? Medical officer: Jerry Dobrovolny holds the job that nobody wants to see utilized. As the medical officer, Dobrovolny has to make sure all 14 members of the battery come through the salute in good health.
Crime stats take another dip in New West BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER email@example.com
Deputy police chief Dave Jones had many reasons to smile – and one reason to frown – at the last police board meeting. Crime stats and calls for service in the Royal City have been on a steady decline since the Winter Olympics in February,
with a year-to-date decrease of eight per cent in total Criminal Code offences and a four per cent decrease in calls for service. “Our statistics show that we are continuing with the downhill trend in crime since (the Olympics),” said Jones. “We are down in almost every major category.” But a long streak came to an end with the discovery of the body of 68-year-old
Patrick LeBlanc in an abandoned car in the back parking lot of the Royal City Apartments. LeBlanc’s death is the first homicide in New Westminster since the autumn of 2007. Insp. Laurin Stenerson pointed out that the LeBlanc investigation is ongoing, with the integrated homicide investiga-
tion team also involved in examining the more than 100 exhibit items collected for forensic examination. Police board chair Mayor Wayne Wright said it’s unfortunate homicide numbers don’t take into account extenuating circumstances. ◗Crime Page 4

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR System will never work ◗ continued from page 6
Essentially, residential streets should have a pedestrian friendly, park-like feel, and major thoroughfares should be free flowing and away from pedestrians. What we have here is nothing like that, and I share Mr. Vanden-Eykel’s frustration with a system that will never work. Larry Kammel, New Westminster
Letter writer responds
As Colin Dover (Take out pesky pedestrians, Letters to the editor, The Record, May 19) didn’t seem able to muster any kind of rebuttals to the arguments I made in my previous letter, I should probably just consider myself vindicated and move on. There doesn’t seem much point in me writing a response, or in The Record continuing to print the debate. However, as the man did make several claims of a personal nature, I think it’s fair that I be allowed to answer them. Not to let libel get in the way of a good story, Mr. Dover, but no, I do not drive my monster truck to the “beer store.” In fact, I’d be willing to bet that you drink more than I do. It would be impossible for you to drink less. I would also be willing to bet that you spend more on gasoline per month than I do. And since you don’t seem to have troubled yourself to understand the points I was making, I will merely thank you for providing readers with a useful contrast between the two of us.

Shocked by tower decision
FITNESS MEMBERSHIP FOR
I have just returned from out of town to learn that city council has voted to retain the derelict tower on the site of the Woodland’s school property. I find it arrogant in the extreme that councillors Jonathan Cote, Bill Harper, Jaimie McEvoy and Lorrie Williams chose to ignore the recommendations of city staff and the will of 95 per cent of the people who participated in the consultation process. An acceptable and cost-effective solution to the question of a memorial would have been to demolish this tower and replace the site with a garden or some small monument. It is astonishing that this group of minor-league politicians would ignore expert opinion and the will of the people in order to satisfy some special-interest groups. I do sincerely hope that the voters of New Westminster remember the irresponsible behaviour of this group when the time comes to consider them for re-election. Can we now have a full accounting of the costs to date as well as the ongoing costs that will result from this distorted lesson in the democratic process? David McFarland, New Westminster

NDP: Lacks credibility on economy ◗ continued from page 6
to become a vehicle for the religious right, which would doom it to the margins of the political scene. That’s one prospect of hope for the government. The B.C. Liberals’ other glimmer of hope found in the Mustel poll (and supported by the findings of other recent polls) is that the NDP itself shows few signs of growth in popularity. The NDP is still not viewed with much credibility when it comes to managing the economy. This may provide the only path back to respectability for the B.C. Liberals, but it’s by no means guaranteed. Hansen rhymed off a
number of economic indicators and forecasts that all point upwards for B.C. Job numbers are up, as are building permits and retail sales. Mills are re-opening as the forest industry lurches back to life, and the mining industry appears stronger than any time in recent memory. Several economic forecasts put B.C. at the head of the pack when it comes to economic growth among provinces. Once an economic recovery takes a firmer hold, will the electorate be more forgiving toward the B.C. Liberals and more suspicious of the NDP’s perceived weakness? Or will a recovery put everyone in a comfort zone that
allows enough people to take a chance on the New Democrats? The answer to this puzzle may provide the key to the next election. In the meantime, Hansen and his colleagues have to find a way to make people listen to them once more. As long as the din over the HST blocks everything else out, the government will continue be ignored (or vilified) – and the prospects of that third party rising will increase. There may come a day when Hansen visits the press gallery and gets his message out in a more effective way, but that day still seems a long way off.

at all. I couldn’t communicate with another person,” she said. Now, she’s working on a written English assignment, outlining her opinion on Quebec’s proposal to ban the veil, worn by some Muslim women. Three months ago, Mahmoodi signed up with the Newcomer Youth Connection Program. It’s for New Westminster and Burnaby youth, between the ages of 15 and about 24, who have moved to Canada within the past five years. It’s designed for youth who don’t fit in the traditional school settings. “We take all the youth who drop (out) from mainstream school,” says program coordinator Tully Mtatiro. They get help with things like life skills, English and counselling so they are ready to go back to school — either high school or adult education, depending on how old they are. Each student gets an individualized program, and they work one-on-one and in groups with their instructors. The program is for all the ones who can’t cope with school for whatever reason: language barriers, cultural barriers or emotional problems. Mtatiro says some come from refugee camps; they may have witnessed atrocities and now need counselling. More than 65 youth have successfully graduated since the program started last September, Mtatiro says. Alex Gist is Mahmoodi’s life skills teacher. He works with a team of seven that includes a teacher, a therapist, a youth worker and outreach workers. He says the school usually has about 15 students, and they stay for about two months, but it varies depending on need. “We’re like a bridge program, a transition program,” he says. “It’s not a high
school, it’s not a university, but we’re trying to get them into those things.” Most of the students are from East Africa or the Middle East, Gist says. Some are referred to the program through local high schools. New Westminster Secondary, for example, and Burnaby’s Byrne Creek Secondary both have a high population of refugee kids. Gist says a lot of students come to Canada when they are young and can pick up the language and assimilate, but it’s the older kids that have a harder time. “They come into high school, they have to adjust, they have to learn English,” Gist says. “They are kind of the ones that slip through the cracks.” And that’s what the program is trying to address. The Ministry of Advanced Education fund the program, which is free. There are bus tickets and food available, based on need. For Mahmoodi, the program is helping her prepare for an academic environment. She wants to go back to school and change her major to become a kindergarten teacher. “I think it’s so good for everyone,” Mahmoodi said of the program. Meanwhile, Mtatiro hopes to get more youth involved. And to help spread the word, the Purpose Society is holding an open house to showcase the relatively new program. Mtatiro hopes to spread news to the community so more youth get referred. “When the youth drop out from school, it’s very hard to get them,” Mtatiro says. The event is Friday, May 28, from noon to 4 p.m. at 720 12th St. in New Westminster. To RSVP, e-mail tully. firstname.lastname@example.org.

New West not the best – but not the worst 106 in that category. New West also did better than Burnaby in the unemployment category, ranking at 80 while Burnaby came in at 133 on the list, and slightly better in the affordable housing category, at 164 compared with Burnaby’s ranking of 175. In the lifestyles section, New Westminster ranked high for having many doctors, at 48, and did well for the amount of health professionals in the city overall, at 80. Those results might be attributed to the large hospital in the city, Royal Columbian. New Westminster ranked sixth for population growth and third for public transit use out of 179 cities across Canada. In the culture category, New Westminster ranked in as the 15th most cultured city. The city has a new director of culture, who started last month, Wright said. “It is an extremely important thing to us,” he added. New Westminster also

New Westminster has ranked as the 50th most livable city in Canada, out of 179 cities across the country. MoneySense magazine compiled the list, which was based on four sections of categories: prosperity, affordability, weather and air quality, and lifestyle. New Westminster did not make it on the list in 2009. “We’re coming up from nowhere,” New Westminster mayor Wayne Wright said. “And we’ll do even better next year.” The city’s climate worked against it – it tied with Burnaby for 146th out of the 179 cities for rain and snow days, and 173rd for annual precipitation levels. While New Westminster ranked slightly lower than Burnaby for average household income, at 87 to Burnaby’s 83, New Westminster ranked higher for discretionary income, at 69. Burnaby ranked in at

MRIs: Demand constantly on the rise ◗ continued from page 1
“Technicians responsible for operating MRIs have been notified about potential layoffs,” Dix said in his press release. According to the Ministry of Health Services, the number of MRIs performed in B.C. has increased by 170 per cent since 2001-02. The province conducted 101,000 MRI exams in 2008-09, the ministry has reported, up from approximately 37,000 in 2001. “We are experiencing growing costs of technology, drugs and an aging population putting pressures on the sustainability of our health-care system,” according to a statement sent by an aide for B.C. Health Minister Kevin Falcon to The Vancouver Sun on Monday. “We are reviewing the way diagnostic imaging is done
in the province to ensure these expensive procedures are being used in an appropriate manner.” The average wait time for MRIs in B.C. was 84 days in 2008, and there was a yearlong waitlist at the time, though spaces were held for critical cases. In an article in the Burnaby NOW in July 2008, a spokesperson for Fraser Health said it was unlikely Burnaby’s new MRI machine would decrease wait times. Population growth in the area, and newly discovered uses for the magnetic resonance imaging unit, meant time slots would still be filled, spokesperson Michael Bernard said in the July 12, 2008 article, titled Patients will still wait for MRIs.
“The uses of MRI continue to multiply, which drives more demand for its use,” Bernard said. The Burnaby Hospital Foundation raised $2.7 million to buy the MRI. Fraser Health, which covers Burnaby to Mission, a population of more than 1.5 million, has two other MRI scanners, one at Royal Columbian Hospital and one at Surrey Memorial Hospital. MRI brain scans usually take place at Royal Columbian, which has a neurology unit, while scans for tumours are primarily booked at Surrey Memorial, which has a cancer unit, Bernard said.

THE LIVELY CITY JULIE MACLELLAN
Watch for short ﬁlm A
short film screening is set for the end of May to introduce the city to a new special effects company in town. Black Arts Media is setting up shop in New Westminster through the efforts of Blair Stapleton, Steven Soo and Sharon Stapleton. Blair is the producer, writer and director of the short film Big Girl, which will be screened on May 29 at 8 p.m. at Unity in Action, 1630 Edinburgh St. A press release notes that they’re using the screening to help showcase the company’s skills and creativity. And it certainly seems they’re not short on either – particularly the “creativity” part. Consider the film synopsis, which begins: “Can an interspecies marriage ever work? Especially when the bride is 50 feet tall and traces her family history back to the Jurassic period? Wilber, the groom, is not waiting to find out.” The film begins immediately after Wilber has left his bride, Lila, at the altar and is searching for somewhere to hide. “Ultimately, Big Girl is a realization of the age-old theme of the war between the sexes, albeit with a completely new take on the theme,” the press release says. Blair has previously worked as an assistant editor on two TV series and as assistant producer for the Ryerson commercial television production facility. While there, he also wrote scripts for clients and taught video editing and acting. One of his videos has been screened at the Montreal International Film Festival. His experimental work has been screened in galleries in Toronto, Chicago and Vancouver. Intrigued? Check out www. blackartsmedia.ca for more about the film and the company. (The ◗Screening Page 15

There’s no runaways at this circus, just kids having fun BY ANDREW FLEMING REPORTER email@example.com
Once upon a time, it was one of a parent’s worst nightmares that their kid might someday run off and join the circus. Nowadays, seeing their offspring fly through the air with the greatest of ease can be a dream come true. Take, for example, the proud parents of kids in the popular CirKids program, a non-profit circus school based in the PNE that has been pumping out aspiring acrobats, jugglers, tightrope walkers, trapeze artists, contortionists and the loose-limbed like for more than 25 years. “My mom got me into it,” said Laura Evans, 18. “I was a really active little kid, and I needed something to do. I went to a Cirque du Soleil show and thought, ‘Oh my gosh, circus is so cool!’ My mom then found this for me, and I’ve been doing it since I was nine.” “My mom actually had to convince me to come,” added Christine Konrad. “There was one girl at my school who was already

While the troupe’s adult arm offers performances as well (most recently, they were part of the aerial team in the opening ceremony of the Olympics), Around the World in 80 Days will be performed entirely by highschoolers. The show runs twice a day from May 27 to 30 at the PNE Gardens at 12:45 and 7 p.m. (matinee only on May 30). Tickets are $18, $15 for students and seniors, and just $12 for those, like most of the performers themselves, under 18. For more information, visit www.circuswest.com. Although all four young women are clearly having the time of their lives with the circus, none of the literally well-balanced teens say they plan on running away with the circus for good and will likely choose less risky (in more ways than one) careers paths. “Next year I’m going to Simon Fraser and will probably go into science, do something normal for a change,” said Konrad with a laugh. Their parents, proud as they must be, are probably relieved.

From the “better late than never” file, a belated hats-off to the youthful talent from New Westminster schools. Six local students were part of the Royal City Musical Theatre’s hugely entertaining and successful production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor
Dreamcoat. Nine-year-old Sarah Labrosse, a Grade 4 student at Herbert Spencer Elementary, appeared in her first big musical production with Joseph, as part of the children’s chorus. . Also debuting in Joseph was Sophie Labrosse, 12, a Grade 7 French immersion student at Glenbrook. Madeline Clarkson, also a Grade 7 French immersion student at Glenbrook, was also in the chorus. She brought to the stage a long history of acting, singing and dancing. Alyssa Quan, 14, was also in the chorus. She’s a
Grade 9 student at NWSS who has been singing and dancing since age three. She dances competitively in jazz, lyrical and tap and also plays many musical instruments. Joseph was her first show with RCMT. Jesse Decoste, a Grade 11 student at NWSS, appeared as one of Joseph’s brothers in his fourth Royal City Musical Theatre production. He previously appeared in The Music Man, Peter Pan and Carousel. He has also toured with Royal City Youth Ballet’s Nutcracker production multiple times. He’s also part
of the school’s improv comedy group and recently returned from the Canadian Improv Games. Sadie DeCoste, a Grade 8 student at Glenbrook, was in the ensemble for her first show with Royal City Musical Theatre. She has performed for many years with Royal City Youth Ballet. She’s studying ballet and musical theatre at Northwest Academy of Performing Arts. Do you have an item for Lively City? Send ideas to Julie, jmaclellan@royalcity record.com.

Hearing aids turn heads Acoustica Hearing expands to North Shore
John and Reza Jahanashahi have many reasons to smile. After more than a decade selling hearing aids at Acoustica Hearing, they’re expanding the business and have now opened a North Shore location at 2432 Marine Dr. in Dundarave, West Vancouver. This, along with their ﬂagship Burnaby location at 4564 Dawson St. and South Surrey/ White Rock location, the Jahanashahi brothers are offering same day service for hearing aid sales and repairs to customers throughout the Lower Mainland. “All of our custom hearing aids are made right here and all of our service is done right on site in our production laboratory,” said Reza. “Unlike other hearing aids that are made out east, our products are in stock and our staff is ready to help you right away. You can be tested and ﬁtted with a new hearing aid the same day.” Now with three locations, Acoustica can provide hearing aids and repair hearing aids for many customers in the Lower Mainland. “We will test your hearing, we will help select the best hearing aid for you and we will ﬁt your hearing aid, all in the same day,” said Reza. Reza said the advancements in hearing aids mean small behind-the-ear units are almost invisible. “The new units ﬁt more naturally behind the ear and most people don’t even know they are wearing a hearing aid,” said Reza. “The new units don’t plug the ears.” Since opening its retail outlet in Burnaby in 2000, Acoustica Hearing has enjoyed business

growth right from the outset by providing same day service. By producing its own custom hearing aid products, Acoustica has managed to dramatically reduce the costs of manufacturing and cut down waiting time, allowing the savings to be passed on to the consumer. “We make the shells and assemble the hearing aids right here,” said John. “We don’t have to send things out East.” When customers need repairs or service, Acoustica has its own technicians on site and in most cases; hearing aids can be repaired while customers wait. Acoustica is in partnership with one of the world’s leading makers of hearing instruments. Using the latest in technology to create all types of hearing aids - analog, programmable and digital - allows Acoustica to offer customers a wide selection of products in order to suit the customer’s needs. The ﬂagship Burnaby location is at 4564 Dawson St, one block south of Brentwood Town Centre, 604-294-1080. White Rock is located at 102A 15252 - 32 Ave, Surrey, 604-535-1080.

“After buying my present hearing aids from you about 7 years ago, I recently needed regular servicing on both units. This required some parts and adjustments. You did this in less than an hour while I waited in your ofﬁce ... I will deﬁnitely recommend your excellent customer service and hearing aids to anyone wanting to improve their hearing.” E.C. Weber “I would like to express my appreciation for the service you have given me. I requested a repair on my hearing aid which was purchased from another well known company. Not only did you repair it, but did so in 20 minutes. I was in a hurry and could have come back another day. Your charge was $250 less than the minimum quoted to be by the original supplier ... You may be sure I will be telling my many senior friends about your company and service.” Sincerely, N.A. Hansen

You live in Regina, your elderly mom lives in Victoria. Having a hard time taking care of her? You’re not alone. Statistics Canada estimates that almost one-quarter of the 1.65 million Canadians over the age of 45 who are providing care to a parent or in-law live over an hour away. Distance creates challenges for caregivers. Mom might tell you she’s fine, even when she’s not coping well. You’ll worry and feel guilty that you can’t spend more time with her. The situation may cause resentment with siblings who aren’t able to help. What to do? Holly Quinn, spokesperson for myNurse, a new service from Bayshore Home Health that offers people regular health management visits by a registered nurse, provides these suggestions:
• Identify friends or neighbours mom can call if she needs help. • Get someone to come in regularly to help with light housework, shopping or to keep mom company. • Arrange for meals-on-wheels to be delivered. • Hire a registered nurse to visit mom quarterly and conduct a physical assessment, a nutrition review and home fall risk assessment. • Take care of yourself—if you’re not coping, you won’t be much help to mom.

Managing your meds Every year, incorrect use of prescription drugs is the cause of one quarter of hospital admissions for the elderly and 23 per cent of all nursing home admissions. But keeping track of what drug to take at the right time can be challenging, especially for people with multiple prescriptions. “According to the Canada Safety Council the average Canadian over the age of 65 is taking nine medications daily,” says Holly Quinn, spokesperson for myNurse, a new service from Bayshore Home Health that offers people regular health management visits by a registered nurse. “Factor in additional health problems such as dementia, and it’s easy to understand why drug non-adherence is a serious health concern for the elderly.” Quinn offers the following tips: • Have a health professional review your medications, help you establish a schedule, and discuss possible side effects or interaction concerns.
• Always take your medication at the same time and in the manner prescribed. • Have your pharmacist organize your medications in a blister card. • Visit www.mynursehealthcheck.ca to download a handy chart to keep track of the medicines you’re taking. • Unless otherwise instructed, finish any prescription you receive—even if you’re feeling better. • If you have trouble opening the safety cap of your medication bottle, ask for a flip top lid.

Preventing fatal falls Kathleen was an active 85year old until she slipped in the bathtub, cracking several vertebrae and breaking her wrist. Kathleen’s situation is not uncommon. Falls are one of the greatest health risks for seniors. Every year, one out of every three seniors over the age of 65 will fall, and more than eight out of ten injuryrelated hospitalizations for seniors are a result of falls. “The good news is that most falls are predictable and preventable,” says Holly Quinn, spokesperson for myNurse, a new service from Bayshore Home Health that offers people regular health management visits by a registered nurse. Quinn suggests the following to help prevent falls: 1. Since most falls occur at home, especially in the kitchen, on the stairs or
in the bathroom, take some time to review any potential hazards. Make sure stairs are well-lit, eliminate throw rugs and use a non-skid bath mat. 2. Develop a safe program for staying active to help strengthen legs and improve flexibility and balance.
3. Wear slippers with nonskid soles and replace worn or ill-fitting footwear to prevent tripping. In case of a fall, have a plan to get help. Consider getting a personal alarm and keep a mobile or cordless phone available at all times. NC

Five simple tips to help seniors ‘right-size’ their life As people transition into old age, there’s often a series of difficult decisions to be made. Should they move to a smaller house or condo? Is it necessary to look at a retirement residence? Regardless of the decision a number of things can be done to make the next chapter of seniors’ lives easier and enjoyable. Downsizing, or right-sizing, can be an emotional process for the whole family: moving parents into a smaller space may mean sifting through a lifetime of memories, deciding what to keep and what to give away. Seniors involved often feel like their lives are slipping away with the family home. The experts at Henkel – makers of Purex®, Soft Scrub®, and Renuzit® -- have some suggestions may make the transition easier. 1. Create a positive atmosphere around the move. Host a moving party with family and friends. This will give the sense that a new and exciting chapter is starting in the parent/ family member’s life. 2. Break the move into steps. Do it a room at a time, easy ones first. Save the family heirlooms, pictures and other treasures until last. This will decrease the stress level and allow time to reminisce over the emotional items. 3. Consider having some of your items appraised and, if they are valuable, hold a live or online auction. 4. De-cluttering is only one part of the equation: thought must also be put into making the new living space convenient and functional for whoever is moving in. The new living space should reinforce the senior’s independent lifestyle while making sure the space is organized. It’s sometimes a good idea to hire an organizational expert to make the house as functional as possible. 5. While closets, shelving, the laundry room, etc. can all be organized and arranged by an expert, there are some simple things a family can do themselves

to make everyday cleaning and household activities manageable for elderly loved ones. For example, two or three sets of dinnerware can be kept in easy to reach places while the rest are stored in cupboards. Another solution is Purex Complete 3-in-1 laundry sheets which contain a load’s worth of detergent, softener and anti-static all in one powerful sheet. When the sheet is dropped into water, the detergent is released into the wash cycle. Once the wash is complete, the laundry sheet can be
transferred along with clothes into the dryer. The sheet’s built-in, heatactivated stripe softens and removes static throughout the drying cycle. Instead of using multiple steps, liquids and dryer sheets to get laundry done there’s just one compact box. As the population of seniors increases, change doesn’t have to be seen as negative or upsetting – it can be exciting and enjoyable.
Handled with planning and organization, the next chapter of their lives can be stress free. NC

Bard comes to Hume Park Hume Park Elementary students tackled Shakespeare in a recent performance of The Tempest. Students from the Sapperton school took to the stage to perform Bard, under the direction of theatre professional Renee Bucciarelli. “It’s a community effort, and the school is grateful for the many volunteers that have contributed time and talent to give these young thespians an introduction to Shakespeare,” Hume Park teacher Beverly Jakeman said in an e-mail. “Some will
develop a lifelong love of theatre, perhaps careers will grow as a result of this rich experience.” As a small school, Hume Park has been able to offer students this authentic theatre experience for two consecutive years, Jakeman said. The 62-student school qualified for an ArtStarts grant to help the fund this project, and the school’s parent advisory council raffled off a handmade quilt to also help pay for the production. email@example.com

Shallow planting is key for peony blooms Your peony needs to be replanted more shallowly. But don’t do this till the fall when it’s gone dormant.
BRANCHING OUT ANNE MARRISON
Question: This is the third year I’ve tried with this early peony. It always gets just the one bloom and a lot of leaves. All my other peonies do much better in the same location. Any ideas for me? Diane Muir, by e-mail Answer: If peonies are planted too deeply, their flowers may be very few or none at all. Their growing points shouldn’t be deeper than four or five centimetres. Usually this problem arises because of the initial planting depth. But sometimes it happens slowly due to yearly applications of deep mulch.
Question: I have different kinds of mushrooms on my lawn, and every time I pull them out they grow back again. Is there any way to prevent them growing back? Virginia Wong, Vancouver Answer: There’s no chemical way to deal with mushrooms. These spring up from an extensive network of roots (called mycelium) down in the ground. Until these roots are dug up, the mushrooms (fruiting bodies) will keep shooting. Most only shoot twice a year: after rain in spring and fall. It’s a lot of work to dig them up because the mycelium is usually like a mass of fine threads and it would be very difficult to dig up all of it. Mycelium’s below-soil spread can

Question: My aloe vera plant is getting top-heavy. Should I be picking some of the fronds (or whatever they’re called) from time to time? What is the best way to care for my plant? Brenda Ahola, by e-mail
Answer: The leaves of the aloe vera plant look a bit like fat, pointy stems, but in fact they are leaves. They’re often fairly swollen because the aloe comes from dry, desert-type terrain and uses its leaves to store enormous amounts of water, which is slowly released to help the plant survive. The gel-like sap of aloe vera within these leaves is reputed to have healing powers. Some people grow the aloe vera plant so that they can pick some leaves
and use the thick juice to soothe cuts. You might try picking a leaf to try this out next time you have a cut. But removing leaves to solve top-heaviness won’t be very effective and won’t improve the looks of your plant. Your aloe vera needs to be repotted. If you don’t have room to keep it in a larger pot, you could divide it into another pot or two. Aloe vera is easy to split – and, because it’s a healing-type plant, friends may be glad to have one.
The potting mix should be well-drained with a little gravel added. The gravel improves drainage and helps stabilize the pot. When you repot, cut off any brown or discoloured roots. Aloe vera can be fertilized once a month in the growing season with balanced fertilizer (all numbers the same). After watering, you should let it dry right out before watering again. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Seawolves fall short in NCAA ﬁeld lax semiﬁnal

Follow the ball: British Columbia defeated Ontario, foreground, 52-33 in the opening round of the women’s open division at the Canadian national netball championships held at Burnaby Mountain Secondary over the May long weekend. B.C. went on to win gold in both the open and under-23 women’s divisions.
B.C. wins netball gold BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
British Columbia won its third open national women’s netball title in four years at Burnaby Mountain Secondary School over the May long weekend. Team B.C. won the open women’s title by a narrow 39-35 score over Ontario in the championship final on Sunday. Quebec took the bronze medal. B.C.’s junior team won its fourth consecutive gold, beating Team Alberta 41-32 in the u-23 final. Ontario finished third overall, downing Quebec 52-36 in the consolation final. Ontario defeated Alberta 52-45 to win the u-18 division title. B.C.’s u-18 team took the bronze medal following a 43-25 loss to Alberta in the playoff match.
Burnaby’s Sabrina Versteeg, Shawnette Cockburn, Ashley Joe and Amonda Francis were all named to the Canadian national team following the championships. All four Burnaby athletes will join the Canadian national women’s team which will take part in the America’s championship world netball qualifying tournament in St. Lucia in July. The top two teams will qualify for the upcoming world championships to be held in Singapore in 2011. B.C. easily won the open women’s round robin pool, defeating Ontario 52-33 and Quebec 50-29 to earn a berth into the final. In preliminary u-23 play, B.C. more than doubled Alberta 53-22 before coasting by Ontario 57-22 and Quebec 54-34. In u-18 round robin play, Team B.C. fell to both Alberta and Ontario.
A standing-room-only crowd of more than 10,000 fans watched their Stony Brook Seawolves give No. 1 University of Virginia all it could handle in NCAA Division I field lacrosse Saturday. Stony Brook, behind a two-goal performance from America East player of the year Kevin Crowley, lost 10-9 to the favoured Virginia Cavaliers in the second round of the NCAA national championships Sunday. With his two goals, Crowley, the No. 1 draft pick of the Western Lacrosse Association Burnaby Lakers, set a new school record of 51 goals in a single season. Stony Brook teammate Kyle Belton also scored a pair of goals for the eighthranked Seawolves. Crowley helped Stony Brook get on the board, setting up teammate Jared LeVerne in transition to tie the score 1-1 early in the game. But Virginia answered with four straight counters to take a four-goal advantage. However, the Seawolves fought back and drew even at 5-5 in the third quarter, when Crowley took a pass from junior teammate Jordan McBride and scored from directly out in front. Crowley scored his second of the game in the final quarter, tying the contest at 8-8 before Virginia again answered with back-toback markers in the final five minutes of play. “I’m so proud of these guys,” said Seawolves head coach Rick Sowell in a school press release. “We had a goal a year ago and accomplished that and then some. I was confident that our guys would show up and play, and they did that. This was one heck of a journey.” Crowley finished third in the nation in NCAA Div. I scoring with 51 goals. He was also third overall, averaging three goals per game and 4.53 points per outing, which tied him with former New Westminster junior A teammate Curtis Dickson at the University of Delaware.

Don’t let BC’s Largest Parade Pass You By! What better way to celebrate the excitement in the community of the City of New Westminster than with a parade? Secure your spaces along our parade route because BC’s largest parade is coming through and you’ll want a front row seat to see it all! The 2010 Hyack International Parade sponsored by Royal City Centre will take to the streets on Saturday, May 29th and will include over 140 entries from British Columbia and the United States. The parade route starts at 6th Street and 8th Avenue, going south on 6th Street to Queen’s Avenue, east to 1st Street and then into Queen’s Park. Be sure to be in place early and get ready for a thrill, as the Vancouver Police Motorcycle Drill Team heads down the parade route at 10:15 am, performing their eye-popping and breath-taking drills and formations. Then it’s time for our highlight event at 11:00 am precisely! Be on the lookout for lots of championship marching bands, creative and eye-catching floats,
and in particular, the Hyack Festival Association’s own award winning Royal float, celebrating this year’s theme of “Be Your Best in the City of New West”. No parade is complete without comical clowns that delight young and old alike as they fall all over themselves trying to make spectators laugh. Merry mascots will also be on hand, representing their corporate sponsors and waving at the crowds. Kids love them!
Before and after the Parade, from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm, be sure to check out Sixth Avenue between Sixth and Seventh Street by Royal City Centre for the Uptown Street Fair. There will be lots of excitement and fun for the whole family. Family festivities with floats, fun and frivolity! Catch it all at the 2010 Hyack International Parade sponsored by Royal City Centre.

On Saturday, March 27th the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce and Hyack Festival Association hosted their 24th Annual Gala Dinner and Auction. Held at the Executive Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre in Coquitlam, this elegant affair welcomed over 125 guests. The evening started out with a champagne reception, live music and a fabulous meal, followed by Silent Auction Tables, Balloon Draws, the excitement of the Live Auction and Diamond reverse-draw. Over 300 Auction items were displayed, thanks to our many donors! This event would not have been such a resounding success without the generosity and support of all of our Sponsors: Cartwright Jewelers Ltd., the Basran Family, Mott Electric, Millennium Flooring Centre Inc., Target Event Productions Ltd., G & F Financial Group, Scotiabank, Wine Factory and The Record. Invaluable to us as well are our many volunteers who gave freely of their time, including photographers Graham Ballantyne and Melanie Vogel, whose pictures were depicted in an earlier edition of The Record (Wednesday, April 7, 2010) and are also shown here.

Portland Royal Rosarians Annual Rose Planting
As a member of the Northwest Festival Hosting Association, the Hyack Festival Association is honoured to participate in the Annual Portland Royal Rosarian Rose Planting ceremony. For over two decades, the Prime Minister of the Portland Royal Rosarians has officiated over this most prestigious ceremony in front of City Hall, where a rose (Sevillana) is planted in the commemorative rose garden in honour of the current year’s
Hyack President - continuing a tradition of friendship between our two Cities. There is always a large group of VIPs and dignitaries on-hand to view this solemn, yet joyous occasion, which emphasizes the bond with the City of Portland’s Royal Rosarians as well as numerous communities and festivals across the North-western portion of the United States. Our event takes place in advance of the Portland Rose Festival where all of the Festival Heads from Northwest Festival Hosting are “knighted” at the beginning of June in honour of the dedication and commitment of these individuals who work tirelessly in their own communities while spreading goodwill near and far. We look forward to seeing you all at this time honoured ceremony which is always a true crowd pleaser and which will take place on Saturday May 29th at 2:15 PM near the front steps of City Hall!
